Looking back on the 2021 tour

Head coach Roger Payne recalls a successful trip to Utah

Ballers Heaven had an amazing week touring Utah to close out 2021, which saw them play against Layton Christian Academy.

The Ballers Heaven squad narrowly lost by 12 and gave a great account of themselves, also losing to RSL Academy, which is ranked 24 in the entire USA by 20.

The average age of Ballers Heaven players was just 15, so playing against a post-grad program showed great maturity and development.

The team was also invited to watch and learn from number 12-ranked BYU College powerhouse.

Head coach Roger Payne said: “What an honour and privilege to be able to learn from coach Mark Pope and his staff as we were able to witness some amazing coaching and some of tomorrow’s future star be pushed through their paces.”
